The Challenge is to read and release books who's titles begin with A - Z (words like The and A don't count) and list them in order of the alphabet. The Challenge will start August 1st and end August 31st. Only books released August 2015 will count. Previously released books do not count. The books may have been read and registered at any time but released in August 2015. The releases can be wild or controlled.

example: All Good Things
Beers of North America
(The) Course Portfolio

If you don't have a title starting with B or any other letter skip that letter and fill it in when you do find a book for it.

Example:

A
Believing in Magic - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13474846
Car Shopping Made Easy - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13474846
D
E
F
G
H
Issues of Life - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13473353
J..... and so on. The idea is to have the alphabet filled in by the end of August.

It has been brought to my attention that the letters Q, X and Z are going to be a problem so for those 3 letters only they can be anywhere in the title

example: Matri(X) Algebra for the Biological Science
Bra(Z)zvavillle Beach

Since I'm releasing anyway, I'll log the August books against the alphabet and see how far I get!

Updated 8/11 with all the matches of read books, now released, that I could find. And pulled one for that "A" to read first, then need to dig for the other missing letters.

Updated again 8/29, with *almost* everything.

Will see how well I do at this. (At first I was tempted to try an extra challenge, releasing the books in alphabetical order, but I suspect that conflicts with other challenges, irresistible release opportunities, and availability of some of the harder letters might make that too difficult, so I'll just try and complete the alphabet!)

OOOhhhh - you even got the harder letters.

 

OOOhhhh - you even got the harder letters.


Heh! Yeah, I was on the point of hitting up Better World Books for the more tricky letters, and then I wound up stumbling across some at local secondhand-book shops.

I have candidates on hand for the remaining letters, either still to be read or read-but-not-yet-journaled.

Sigh. BWB takes too long to get to me to use for challenges, unless I plan _way_ in advance.

 

Thanks for this entertaining challenge!

I actually got further with this release challenge than I thought I would.

You could use it for "a" I suppose......

 

Yesterday 149 books cost me $7.00 at a library sale. But I found no V's that I could stand to read. So today I hit Goodwill and spent $2.00 for one mass market paperback with a V title.

But at least I found one, so I'm all set with books. Most I had read previously or have been reading since the Challenge was announced last month. I'm reading my H book now and have maybe a half dozen left to go.

and found almost all the letters for one's I've read except, strangely A, E & V. I also didn't have Q or Z, but I expected that.

Pulled a book for A, will need to look for a V - and probably won't get to Q or Z unless a romance jumps out of the stash.

Updated my post above with the ones I found and released

getting there!
I'm really loving watching the letters fill in as the days go by. We still have time so don't give up and don't forget to check what letters you still need :-)

I've got all my books and I've released some, though the computer problems put me way back on July 20th with posting to Challenges. So it'll take a while to see that I've done any.

I think I've got 2 1/2 still to read. Unfortunately the half is one I've been working on little by little for quite a long time. It's been slow. And the Z book I started didn't catch my attention.

I'll probably have to read it anyway, as I don't have time to go looking for new books. Too busy registering, releasing and getting caught up on computer work. : )

 

There are a couple I need to register, one I'm reading now, a couple of fairly short TBRs and a few stubborn ones I haven't figured out yet...but I'm still hoping I can make it!

 

I'll take a stab at it. What's a challenge if you join too early?

You've still got over a week - for you that should be enough time. ;)

 

Snicker. How did you know I did a Goodwill run yesterday and found a Z, a K, and a C book? I rejected the star Bio on Justin Biebber, as that meant I would have had to read it! Gag.

Yeah. Someone gave me the Justin Bieber book for BookCrossing. I'll gladly release it but never even considered it for a Read and Release Challenge. : )

Wow, yeah, there are things I *won't* do for BookCrossing. :p

I hit Goodwill & the church thrift shop Saturday, so I think I've got all my letters covered. Just have to finish registering, then release!

LOL, don't forget to read them :-)

Then you can brag a little. :)

Looks like GoryDetails, zbird, and booklady331 are done so far - nice going!

 

Nice job BruceAlexander. :)

 

even though I haven't been able to put the correct journal entry info including links in all of them yet. (I've been working my way through all my releases since my computer failure on July 20th and I'm part way through July 31st, so most of the books I've released after that don't have all the info... yet.)

So I've still got 11 to release but the good news is, I've only got P and Z to finish reading and I'm part way through both books, so I'm feeling optimistic. : )

lol! and I'm feeling optimistic for you :-)... still have a few more days

 

Only registering, releasing, and posting left. : )

 

and we're down to the last 2 days.

Posted the missing letters, and then noticed "V" was missing & I never pulled a V book to read. Not sure if I can find a short book and read/release it in time!

since we're almost finished with this one and you are so close to filling that last slot cross your heart and promise to read the V book later and post it now :-)... lol

Can you find another copy of a "V" book you read in the past, so you could just register/copy-and-paste-JE/release? That'd still count!

 

 

Yay, your computer must be feeling *much* better since you're catching up with your postings. :)

Yes, the computer is working, sort of. I lost a lot, but some was restored. And the printer issue that I thought was because of the computer mess turned out to be its own separate problem and the manufacturer had to send me a new, well... refurbished, one under warranty. And I finally got that set up correctly, so I'm finally able to print labels again too.

But, I'm actually only up to July 31st in my Challenge postings, other than skipping ahead to post the A - Z as I was bound and determined to finish this one. Usually I just go through my release book in chronological order and post them that way, and as I said, I'm still finishing up my July releases.

But since I had put the A - Z books on a separate page, which I printed before the computer and then printer died, and continued filling in by hand, I was able to separate them out.

Now, on to try to finish my July postings tonight so I can start on August before September starts. : )

 

I'll still manage to finish. I enjoyed 2 new authors and books that were on my TBR pile very much. And I know I probably would never have gotten to them : City of Thieves and the Yacoubian Building. I was hoping for the same from the Jannisary Tree http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/13562871/ After 70 pages, I gave up. I didn't care. Challenge or no challenge, I just didn't care. Blech.

Luckily Goodwill was open and so.... reading madly on the X.

lol! yep! I know what you mean. There are some things I won't do for the challenges. And reading boring tedious books is one of them. Let's face it as much as we love books they aren't all wonderful or at least not all suited to our taste. Hope to see you mark finished on your list...there is still tomorrow :-)

All done :)
That was a very good way to clear my box of available books - thanks zbird.
I've also had a couple of catches for this challenge, which is a pleasant change - haven't had that many of them lately. (S)tep on a Crack and (V)anished caught and journalled.

 

You Are Mine - http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8554027

Thanks zbird for a fun challenge - amongst other things, it motivated me to read a couple of TBRs, which is never a bad thing. :)

Full list here: http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/8554027

 

I used the books I had in my BC bookcase, and I read them from A - Z which was an extra challenge. I don't have an X so did not make it but I had 2 catches.It was lots of fun so thank you zbird for this special challenge.

don't forget the X can be anywhere in the title... :-)

I don't even have one of them :-(

 

I'm so glad everyone enjoyed this little challenge. Kudos to all who finished and came within one letter of finishing. I know it wasn't easy only having a month to do this but we showed it could be done :-). There is still today to get those final letters filled in! I have to admit it was fun coming in each day and seeing the lists fill as you all worked hard to complete this challenge. thanks for playing!

 

thanks for playing!


Thanks for hosting!!! It was fun. I was away for a long weekend conference and took only A - Z books with me to read as I had a 12 hour train ride to get there and a 14 hour train ride to get back, plus down time in the evenings. So I read, and released a few when I finished, along the way. (Since I had to carry them, I pulled out the lightest, skinniest A - Z books that I still needed to read for the trip.)

lmbo! that sounds like a good use of time and a fun way to release books.

 

Great challenge. I read three fabulous books, and a couple of good ones. Thanks!

(third fab book was Upright Piano Player, also on my tbr pile forever)
